The power switch is on the front panel for easy access. There are 24 user programmable preset configurations that can be named, stored and recalled from the front panel menu.

Reliable and Affordable

Using the latest integration of MPEG and low power digital electronics technology, the TDR4022 combines a complete IRD in a small, low power, quiet, highly reliable and full-featured professional package.

Agile Receiver

The TDR4022 comes standard with both ASI and DVB-S QPSK demodulator. Additionally, the TDR4022 may be optionally configured with an 8PSK/16QAM demodulator, DS3/E3 receiver, IP input or DVB-S2 demodulator, using industry-leading S2 technology. It will support all standard video (PAL/NTSC) and audio (MPEG, AC3) formats, making the TDR4022 ideal for virtually every application.

Secure Transmission

BISS Mode 1 and E are supported by the TDR4022, in addition to the IDC proprietary Privacy Guard Conditional Access (PGCA). PGCA is a fixed key scrambling system that is included as a standard feature in IDC encoders and decoders. It is addressable and when used with an IDC encoder such as the SE4000™ SD MPEG-2 Video Encoder, allows individual decoders to be added or deleted from the authorization list. No special intervention is required on the part of the TDR4022 operator.
